Easy Attendant - The Easy Attendant service is an automatic call answering service that delivers an interactive menu to callers with recorded announcements, or options for callers to enter the extension number of the person they wish to contact. It can also be configured to play different menus for business and non-business hours.
The Easy Attendant service can be used in the following different ways.
- All incoming calls can go directly to Easy Attendant, with callers using key presses on their phone to select an option from the choices presented to them - for example to transfer to a specific department.
- Easy Attendant can provide an out-of-hour receptionist, where calls in non-business hours are forwarded from the receptionist's number to the Easy Attendant number. The caller then hears the Easy Attendant menu, which may provide self-service options, or just inform the caller that there is no-one to answer their call.
- Easy Attendant can also come into operation only if no-one answers the incoming call, offering a richer set of options than a simple voicemail box. For example, Easy Attendant can play announcements to callers describing the business's opening hours or ask the caller if they wish to leave a message for a specific person.
The Easy Attendant menu is configured by the subscriber, using a simple web-based interface.
An Easy Attendant subscriber can also use a simple Telephone interface to turn Easy Attendant on or off, and record announcements.
